Gates carbon belt drive in colors!

As I wandered past the Gates booth last weekend during the North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS 2012) in Sacramento, I noticed this bike with a pink belt drive.

It turns out this is a special order, limited quantity thing, but if they see there’s demand they might come out with a special edition color or something. Did you know, for example, that Cadel Evans tools around town on a BMC city bike with a yellow belt drive? This is BMC’s “UrbanChallenge” UC01 commuter bike, an aluminum frame bicycle with carbon fork and Shimano Alfine 7-speed hub.

    That pink belt drive bicycle appears to be the Pavlove edition by Independent Fabrication. One sweet looking ride!
